Let's take a look at all of these areas to get a better sense of what OJC offers and if it sounds like the right college for you.
Retention is the number of students that stay enrolled at a school over time. This is a way to get a sense of how satisfied students are with their school experience, and if they have the support necessary to succeed in college.
